will act to resolve this. tom: this sounds a little bit like bob woodward's book to by bob woodward's book when he talked about the debt ceiling fight back in 2011. mcconnell, from the way i read it, mcconnell and reid took it away from the president and said , let us to work our own deal by ourselves, kind of cutting him out of the negotiations. >> that's basically it. with the president said was, you can come up with an alternative plan, one that can pass both houses of congress. if not, the president wants a vote on his plan only in the senate and in the house. the house leaders were non-committal. you also go back to the first time the bush tax cuts were expiring back in 2010, that was a deal cut between vice president joe biden and minority leader mitch mcconnell at that time where they stand at all the tax cuts and apparel tax cut and the unemployment benefits. so the leader coming in again trying to up for some type of compromise and get to the senate. for now the white house is letting the senate worked its magic. tom: interesting. but you very much. well, r-texas congressman micha

>> oh, there are so many different facets to this, tom. can i just say that the process part, and i know i'm not supposed to talk about process, but it makes me uncomfortable. the same people that were there 18 months ago in that room in the white house are there again. they did not come up with a very good idea in august of 2011, and we have to expect something different this time. but the american people in their wisdom retuned the same players to the same positions in the last election, so we will deal with what we have to deal with. i do, you know -- it is important to pot out that these are gointo be revenue bills which have to originate in the house of representatives under our constitution. the senate has a bill that the house passed in august, and this was a bill to extend all existing tax policy for an additional 12 months. the senate cou take that bill, amended if they wish, and send it back to the house. the white house cannot just simply develop a revenue bill and ask both houses of congress to vote on it. doesn't work that way. tom: are you really getting in parliamenta
